I applied streaks and blobs of colors onto the canvas with a palette knife and I made them sing with all the intensity I could...
vocabulary
Vocabulary
  • Abstract-
  • Non realistic representation of a subject
  • Stylized-
  • the simplification form and details to create a more abstract depiction of the subject
  • Geometric shape-
  • 2D area enclosed by a line that can be proven mathematically
  • Organic shapes-
  • 2D area enclosed by a line that cannot be proven mathematically
  • Composition-
  • How the elements are arranged in unison with the principles of design, in a work of art
  • Line, shape, color
  • Unity, balance, variety
project you are going to transform a 2d kandinsky style shape into a 3d ceramic vessel
Project: You are going to transform a 2D Kandinsky styleshape into a 3D ceramic vessel.
hand building techniques
Hand building techniques
  • Slab- rolling out clay in a flat, even “sheet” of clay and letting it become rigid before you construct the form by connecting pieces
coil construction
Coil construction
  • Rolling out strips of clay and stacking the clay before smoothing out the surface.
pinch technique
Pinch technique
  • Roll the claybody into a ball, insert thumb into top and rotate around form- pinching the sides to create the vessel.
vocabulary1
Vocabulary
  • Bisque ware- a greenware piece of pottery that has been fired 1 time at a high temperature and is porous and unglazed.
  • Green ware- Bone drystate of clay when all the moisture is evaporated out of the clay before firing. (MOST FRAGILE STATE!!!!!!!!!)
  • Leather Hard- moist but no longer pliable clay body.
  • Score- to make shallow cuts into the surface of the clay before painting with slip and joining to another piece of clay.
vocabulary2
Vocabulary
  • Slip- creamy mixture of clay and water used to fasten two pieces of clay after both pieces have been scored.
  • Glaze- coating of finely ground minerals that are fired to form a glassy coating on finished ceramics.
  • Vitrification-Fired clay that has fused together completely, so that the pores between refractory particles are filled with glass and the body is impervious to water.
vocabulary3
Vocabulary
  • Slaking-The process of returning dry unfired clay to a slip by soaking in water.
  • plasticity-how flexible moist clay is.
  • Burnishing-Method of achieving a shine by rubbing clay or slip with smooth hard object. 
  • Earthenware-Low-fired ware, usually still porous after firing—must be sealed with vitreous glaze to be functional.  
kandinsky vessels
Kandinsky Vessels

Objective: Transform abstract Kandinsky style shapes into a 3D ceramic vessel.

Students learned about the painter Wassily Kandinsky. Kandinsky used a mixture of organic and geometric shapes to depict music. His use of extreme color also lends itself to the mood depicted by the music. The influence of music in his paintings cannot be overstated, down to the names of his paintings "Improvisations", "Impressions", and "Compositions.“

Students draw a series of these shapes while observing his work, and then transformed these drawings by using a slab hand-building technique to create the ceramic vessel.
